That's not the lifestyle I lead, and in all honesty, if you don't love yourself enough to take care of yourself now, why should someone else love you enough to accept the possibility of having to take care of you later? I know -- I have Lupus, diagnosed 6 years ago in the prime of my life.
Something in the lines of: "why do you wanna deal with this, you already have 3 children on your hand, you don't need to be worrying about this". If my sister listened to her girlfriend, she wouldn't be as happy as she is right now.
If you started dating someone and found out right off the bet that a man has some kind of health issue that he will have to live with for the rest of his life (such as diabetes), would you pursue the relationship anyway? Diabetes is not a big issue if properly controlled via diet, exercise, and medication. Couple of years ago, my sister met and fell in love with a man who has diabetes.
ie..taking meds, eating property to avoid any further complications with their health problem. Yes, I agree in regards to advanced stages of cancer.
Someone in the advanced stages of cancer or some other terminal illness would be difficult because it would be so traumatic to get attached to someone who you know is going to die soon. I would also have no problems pursuing a relationship with someone who has an incurable but treatable and manageable illness (hepatitis comes to mind), as long as they take good care of themselves and keeping up with all the appropriate matters.
She also shouldn't be listening to what others think on this matter. They have a good relationship, he accepted her with 3 children, has a child of his own and now they have a baby together.

Another reason why I never listen to friends The only reason I keep the network is they feed my ego from time to time.

So, I wouldn't have a problem at all dating someone with a health issue, as long as they are well-educated about it and know what they need to do, take good care of themselves, and follow doctor's orders.
